Works by the Han Diaspora Group
Han Diaspora Group - Scarlett Kim, Kwonyin, Saewon Oh, Yunuen Rhi, Jeong (Lynn Stransky), Kayla Tange, and Caroline Yoo

Han Diaspora Group, a group of Los Angeles-based artists of Korean descent, creates a series of digitally-presented sculptures invoking iconic female figures from Korean classical mythology. The artists draw upon powerful goddesses, monsters, and female figures associated with Korean origin stories and folktales. Using contemporary multimedia strategies as well as timeless art-making practices, the artists recontextualize the classical narratives and characters in today’s world, bringing attention to stories that are central to Korean consciousness throughout history. The works address themes such as marginal identities, female empowerment, and reconnecting with origin stories as a means to imagine new futures.
